Judith Gould's powerful first novel, a classic among modern commercial fiction, tells a take of murder revenge, blackmail, and a multitude of deadly sins.
As a child in Nazi-occupied France, seven-year-old Hélène Junot witnessed the brutal murder, rape and violence that tore her family apart and left her orphaned. Vowing to repay the sins visited upon her family seven-fold, she swore vengeance -- and throughout the tumultuous decades that followed, committed her own share of sins as she ruthlessly built a fashion empire and clawed her way to the top, climbing to the peaks of glamourous international society, money and power.
But vengeance can carry a price all its own. Relentlessly pursued by more than her share of wrathful enemies --all of whom have personal reasons to destroy, or even kill her --she discovers that love is a far more powerful potion than retribution and that it is the only salvation that can make her life whole.
Vivid in its details, and with a plot sprawling across decades, this epic, atmospheric and quick-moving novel weaves together sins and counter-sins in a brilliant, electrifying and masterfully told story that contains all the elements and alluring characters that have become the hallmark of Judith Gould at the height of her storytelling powers.

About the Author

Did you ever wonder why there is no author’s photograph or biography on any Judith Gould novel? Well, here’s the story: there is no Judith Gould. And lest you get confused, here I have to switch to third person—because not only is there no Judith Gould, what there is are two friends, Nick Bienes and Rhea (pronounced “Ray”) Gallaher, co-authors who collaborate on writing novels under the pseudonym Judith Gould.
